2020 FH Global Summit – Session 1

September 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

2020 FH Global Summit Virtual Conference

Our 9th annual FH Global Summit will be convened as a series of eight monthly virtual sessions focused on driving new solutions to prevent inherited cardiovascular disease from September 2020 – May 2021.

Over the course of this conference, leading experts from multiple disciplines share the latest research to advance scientific understanding and optimize care for people at risk for premature heart attacks, stroke and heart disease. Each attendee is selected because of their unique views and the contribution they can make to the discussion.

The FH Foundation believes that collectively we can develop the solutions to stop premature heart disease. Join us to become part of the change.
